Monthly treat box - Ideas please!
Poorpigletsrevenge · 18/04/2020 17:42
I would like to treat myself to a monthly box of surprise goodies and would love you to suggest which one I should get.
I don’t care if it’s makeup, kawaii, food items or craft things. I just want a little surprise each month. So I’m open to any suggestions, except for alcohol.
So AIBU to ask you what you recommend if you get a monthly treat box?
(Well yes, I probably am, but this place gets the most traffic)

Haha @Poorpigletsrevenge about as far from an MLM as you can get! Two ex librarians who are a bit obsessed with paper - it's called Ink Drops and is full of fabulous stationery, cards and papery goodness. We're over at inkdrops.co.uk
If you're fancying food based treats, I am also eyeing up Twisted Treats' deliveries, she does AMAZING brownies at a couple of local markets I go to, but am a bit nervous I might eat the whole lot on arrival

I used to get Boxcitement which I liked because they design/make all their own content, so you know you aren't just getting things you could buy anywhere.
I've also had a few boxes from Spotlight Stationery which are really nice if you like expensive stationery.

I never knew this was a thing?!! shock off to Google up a storm
Me neither, what is this?!
I'm lucky if I buy myself something new once a year lol, but like the sound of this!
If it is something you can easily cancel I'd be up for it lol

I will be the downer on the thread sorry... I used to get Birchbox but realised that once the thrill of opening up and seeing what I had , and trying a few bits (none of the things I necessarily needed) I just started to realise it was so so much unnecessary small pieces of plastic I couldn't recycle.
I now scout around and purposefully buy a treat every month that I need and has less plastic

Birchbox - for ages, but it became quite samey and there were a lot of hair care products in particular (I don't care much about my hair). I've still got a bazillion tiny things in a drawer.
Graze - also for ages, but it got more expensive and I got bored
Universal Yums - enjoyed for a while but never managed to get through everything. Also was very Europe based in the time I had it, which felt a bit disappointing.
Loot Crate - for a year. Loved it, but too £££
Papergang - had one box because I love the Ohh Deer site, but I wasn't that into it.
Next: First Spotlight Stationery box will arrive in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to it!
